Gabions and River Mattresses

Manufactured and supplied in Southern Africa with related products and service offerings, based in Johannesburg, we are Proudly South African. We specialize in the manufacture, distribution, design and the installation of our products used in the Civil Engineering, Construction, Architectural, Landscaping and Mining Industries. Gabions are used widely, throughout the world in a wide variety of retaining wall and river erosion control structures to reduce water flow velocities in streams and waterways to prevent soil erosion by encouraging deposition of fine soil sediments and the subsequent growth of indigenous vegetation. These products have been available internationally for in excess of the past 140 years.

Gabion technology has evolved over time to the point where it is now. In South Africa the product become available widely since about 1957, and since then has  spread throughout Africa as a useful tool to solve soil erosion and retention problems. Having now also been widely used in the architectural and landscaping industries. Gabions are simple to install and provide for many labor intensive job opportunities on the sites where the works are undertaken.
